(Mc)Lean Karr

McLean Karr opened to 2,300 from middle position and Ioannis Taramas made it 5,200 on the button. Karr then four-bet to 12,800 and Taramas made the call to see a {A-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} flop which both players checked.

Karr fired out 9,700 on the {8-Hearts} turn and Taramas made the call to see the {5-Diamonds} river. This time Karr bet just 5,300 and Taramas made the call.

Karr showed {A-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} but Taramas flipped {8-Spades}{5-Spades} for a backdoored two pair.

Karr, "Why are you calling preflop? I know you're bluffing."

Taramas responded, "Why are you four-betting ace-ten out of position?"

"Because I know I have the best hand!"

This one could get spicy...

Ioannis Taramas 140,000 -10,000
McLean Karr 42,000 -87,000

Petery Akery Crushes The Hopes Of Andrzej Kwiatkowski

Peter Akery has just doubled up through Andrzej Kwiatkowski. It was an all-in encounter with Akery holding {Q-Clubs} {Q-Diamonds} and Kwiatkowski holding {5-Hearts} {5-Clubs}. The board was {K-Diamonds} {6-Clubs} {4-Spades} {Q-Spades} {6-Diamonds} and Kwiatkowski was left with a mere 1.4k chips.

"OMG! I would have hit quad sixes!" Shouted Joe Elpayaa

In the next hand Kwiatkowski moved his 1.4k over the line. Carlos Lopez was rolling a fag while making it 2,900 to play and Joe Elpayaa called in the small blind. The next player to act was Ioannis Papadopoylos in the big blind and he raised it up to 11,000. Lopez went and smoked his fag and Elpayaa also folded leaving the pair heads up.

Lopez{A-Diamonds} {K-Hearts}
Kwiatkowski{J-Hearts} {3-Hearts}

Board: {10-Spades} {4-Clubs} {2-Spades} {8-Clubs} {A-Clubs}

Kwiatkowski eliminated.
